A tree lighting before Advent- why not?

 We went with our neighbors, the Gaskills, to Birkdale Village just in time for a lovely tree lighting. 
They had fake snow blowers-very fun for the kids.

This is Ellison Gaskill, our next door neighbor.

Josh Gaskill and Robert.
love this smile

weekend without dad

Rob has been out of town so I tried to provide lots of fun things to do this weekend.  Burlington kids,"what was your favorite thing we did this weekend?"

RCBIII-  "My favorite thing was the library."  North County Regional
I took them to get their new cards at our beautiful and very nearby library:  North County Regional.  Our new library has an app.  I downloaded it before we even moved thanks to my library savvy sister-in-law, Megan.  

EEB- "The best thing I did this weekend was the couple 50 cartwheels I did outside.  Yep, for sure."

CCB-"My favorite thing is to go to the pool and play on the big playground that is wet.  But we can't do that now because it is too cold."

MOM- "My favorite thing was being with you guys."

Other highlights:
watching Arthur at A and B automotive after school.

An attempt to get some free ice cream at Carolina Cones.  They close during the winter.  We came too late!!
